Is there a way via Perl or even Python to capture records from a pdf and
output a delimited text file? My work has a situation with a trunk
load of data forms that were scanned as pdfs.
The data needs to be taken from the forms and moved into a database, so
I figure that comma-delimited format will work fine. The amount of
man-hours it would take to manually do this is very cost-prohibitive for
what we have to work with.
I know that a txt2pdf exists, was checking to see if the opposite would
as well. I'm not very versed yet at this language, but I am learning.
Any assistance or push in the right direction would be appreciated.
